How to Draw The Last Unicorn

Step 1.

Start this first step by drawing out the guidelines and shapes of the unicorn as you see it here. First draw a circle for her head and then a long line for her neck. Next attach the neck line to another circle for the torso or chest part of the unicorns body. You will then overlap another circle for her butt end. Lastly draw four leg lines and a tail line.

Step 2.

Now in this second step you will start sketching out the shape of the unicorns snout and then the shape of her face. Sketch in the beginning lining for her mane which is rather wavy. Now you are ready to draw out the shape of her thick neck.

Step 3.

You are one your third step and all you have to do here is draw out her large pointed unicorn horn. You will then sketch out the shape of the unicorns ears, eye and then the rest of her mane. Thicken the shape of her legs and then sketch out some of her hooves.

Step 4.

Well this is your last drawing step and all you have to do now draw the shape of her hind end and then thicken the shape of her tail and draw some hair on the end. Finish her legs and finish her hooves. Once that is complete you can draw the lines on her horn and then erase all the guidelines that you drew in step one and move to the line art step.

Step 5.

This is what your unicorn should come out looking like when you are done. All you need to do now is color her in and you have just learned "how to draw The Last Unicorn" step by step.

There is this animated cartoon movie that I watched the other day and I wanted to do a tutorial on one of the characters. What I will be giving you a lesson on today is “how to draw The Last Unicorn" Amalthea step by step. The Last Unicorn is a movie based on the adventures of a unicorn. The lead character’s name is Amalthea and she goes on an extensive journey because she realizes that she is the last unicorn in existence. Along the way she makes some new friends including a magician named Schmendrick, and Molly Grue who is the wife of Captain Cully. If you watched the movie you will understand why I decided to draw and submit this lesson. At some point in the movie Schmendrick turns the unicorn into a human woman so that they can get lodging accommodations and other reasons too which I cannot disclose at this time. While the unicorn was in her human form she came a cross a young man named Prince Lir who later falls in love with her. Anyway, the movie was pretty good and if you haven’t seen it yet it is pointless for me to spoil the movie for you . Surprisingly the movie was made back in 1982 and has recently become more and more popular with young and teenage children (like myself). I know I didn’t finish telling you how the story ends, but that is because I really want you guys to watch the flick. All I can do for you now is show you how to draw The Last unicorn step by step. Have fun and remember to take your time so that your drawing comes looking great. Peace out and happy drawing people.
